MIDLAND - An accident on I-20 in Midland has taken the life of an oil field truck driver.

Hospital officials tell NewsWest 9, Nicholas Montoya died at Midland Memorial Hospital several hours after his truck turned upside-down on Friday.

Police say the Basic Energy truck blew a tire on the Interstate, near the Midkiff exit.

That sent the truck swerving off the road, across the median, into traffic and then the service road, before flipping over in the field.

No one else was hurt in that accident.
